2 o INCREASES MUSCLE STRENGTH o MAINTAINS BODY FLEXIBILITY o IMPROVES RESPIRATORY FUNCTION o PREVENTS POOLING OF FLUID IN THE LUNGS o IMPROVES CIRCULATION o HELPS MAINTAIN HEALTHY SKIN o PROMOTES EFFECTIVE ELIMINATION o AIDS DIGESTION o RELIEVES STRESS

3 EVERY BODY SYSTEM IS AFFECTED CONTRACTURE AN ABNORMAL SHORTENING OF THE MUSCLE DUE TO LACK OF USE. THE MUSCLE IS FIXED INTO POSITION, IS DEFORMED, AND CANNOT STRETCH. THE PERSON WITH A CONTRACTURE IS PERMANENTLY DISABLED

4 ATROPHY ATROPHY – A DECREASE IN SIZE OR A WASTING AWAY OF MUSCLE TISSUE. CAUSED BY LACK OF USE

5 DECUBITUS ULCER A BREAKDOWN IN SKIN TISSUE THAT OCCURS WHEN BLOODFLOW TO AN AREA IS INTERRUPTED

6 MORE DECUBITI

7 THE TRUNK OF THE PERSON SHOULD BE IN A STRAIGHT LINE WHEN THE PATIENT IS LYING DOWN

8 THE PATIENT IN A CHAIR SHOULD SIT UP STRAIGHT HIS FEET SHOULD EITHER REST ON THE FLOOR OR ON A STOOL HIS LOWER BACK SHOULD REST AGAINST THE BACK OF THE CHAIR THE BACKS OF HIS KNEES SHOULD BE SLIGHTLY AWAY FROM THE SEAT OF THE CHAIR PROPER POSITIONING IN A CHAIR

9 DESIGNED TO HELP THE PATIENT MAINTAIN CORRECT BODY ALIGNMENT AND PREVENT COMPLICATIONS BED CRADLE KEEPS THE WEIGHT OF THE LINENS FROM PRESSING ON THE PATIENT’S BODY

10 FOOT BOARD KEEP THE FOOT IN A NATURAL POSITION TO PREVENT FOOT DROP (PLANTER FLEXION)

11 FOOT DROP BOOT HELPS PREVENT FOOTDROP

12 HAND ROLL PERMITS THE HAND TO FLEX SLIGHTLY AND PREVENTS CONTRACTURES OF THE FINGERS

13 o IF THE PATIENT IS UNABLE TO CHANGE POSITION INDEPENDENTLY, YOU WILL NEED TO ASSIST. o PATIENTS NEED TO BE TURNED EVERY TWO HOURS.

14 Lateral position

15 Fowler’s position is a semi ‑ sitting position. –The spine is kept straight. –The head is supported with a small pillow. –The arms are supported with pillows. The supine (dorsal recumbent) position is the back ‑ lying position. –The bed is flat. –The head and shoulders are supported on a pillow. –Arms and hands are at the sides.

16 Prone position –The person lies on the abdomen with the head turned to one side. –The bed is flat. –Small pillows are placed under the head, abdomen, and lower legs. –Arms are flexed at the elbows with the hands near the head. Lateral position (side-lying) –A pillow is under the head and neck. –The upper leg, ankle, and thigh are supported with pillows. –A pillow is positioned against the person’s back. –A small pillow is under the upper arm and hand.

17 ORTHOPNEIC POSITION FREQUENTLY USED BY PATIENTS WITH RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS HELPS EXPAND THE CHEST AND LUNGS TO ALLOW MORE OXYGEN TO ENTER

18 MOVING PERSONS IN BED Protect the skin when moving the person. –Friction is the rubbing of one surface against another. –Shearing is when the skin sticks to a surface while muscles slide in the direction the body is moving. To reduce friction and shearing: –Roll the person or use assist devices. –Use a lift sheet (turning sheet), turning pad, large incontinence product, slide board, or slide sheet.

19 THE SKIN STICKS TO THE SURFACE BUT THE INTERNAL STRUCTURES ( BONE AND MUSCLE ) SLIDE IN THE DIRECTION THE BODY IS MOVING OCCURS WHEN THE PATIENT SLIDES DOWN IN BED

21

22 IF THE PATIENT CAN ASSIST: HAVE THE PATIENT GRASP THE HEADBOARD AND BEND HIS KNEES PLACE YOUR FOREARMS UNDER HIS SHOULDERS AND KNEES LIFT AT THE COUNT OF THREE

23 IF THE PATIENT HAS A TRAPEZE ON THE BED HAVE THE PATIENT GRASP THE TRAPEZE AND BEND AT THE KNEES MOVING UP IN BED

24 A LIFT SHEET MAKES LIFTING EASIER HELPS PREVENT FRICTION AGAINST THE PATIENT’S SKIN TAKES TWO WORKERS TO LIFT IF PATIENT CAN HELP HAVE HIM BEND HIS KNEES USE FOR PERSONS WHO CAN NOT HELP WITH THE MOVE

25 THE PERSON IS MOVED IN SEGMENTS

26

27 PROPER POSITIONING FOR LATERAL POSITION

28 A PATIENT WHO HAS A SPINAL INJURY OR SPINAL SURGERY MUST BE KEPT IN GOOD BODY ALIGNMENT WHEN TURNING. USING A LIFT SHEET THE PERSON IS TURNED IN ONE MOTION. IT TAKES 2 OR 3 PERSONS TO SAFELY LOGROLL A PATIENT.

29 DANGLING REFERS TO SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE BED WITH THE FEET HANGING DOWN

30 DO NOT LEAVE THE PATIENT ALONE WHEN DANGLING. HAVE THE PATIENT COUGH, DEEP BREATHE, AND EXERCISE THEIR LEG MUSCLES WHEN DANGLING. IF THE PATIENT BECOMES DIZZY LIE HIM DOWN. CHECK THE PERSON’S PULSE AND RESPIRATIONS

31

32 DO NOT ALLOW THE PERSON TO PUT HIS ARMS AROUND YOUR NECK MAKE SURE YOU LOCK THE WHEELS ON THE BED AND WHEELCHAIR

33

34 o APPLY THE BELT AROUND THE PERSON’S WAIST, OVER THE CLOTHING. o TIGHTEN THE BELT SO IT IS SNUG. IT SHOULD NOT CAUSE DISCOMFORT OR IMPAIR BREATHING. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SLIDE YOUR OPEN HAND UNDER THE BELT. o PLACE THE BUCKLE SLIGHTLY OFF CENTER IN THE FRONT. o DO NOT USE WITH PATIENTS WITH FRACTURED RIBS, ABDOMINAL SURGERY, OR HAVING BREATHING DIFFICULTIES

35

36 NOTE THE POSITION OF THE CNA’S HANDS ON THE GAIT BELT NOTE HIS USE OF PROPER BODY MECHANICS NOTE THE PLACEMENT OF HIS KNEES AGAINST THE KNEES OF THE PATIENT

37 ALSO CALLED HOYER LIFT USED TO TRANSFER PATIENTS WHO ARE PARALYZED, VERY HEAVY, OR DIFFICULT TO MOVE YOU NEED AT LEAST 2 STAFF MEMBERS TO SAFELY USE A MECHANICAL LIFT

38

39

40

41 MANY FACILITIES HAVE “NO LIFT” POLICIES. A SPECIAL LIFT IS USED TO STAND AND MOVE RESIDENTS IF YOUR FACILITY HAS THIS RESTRICTION.

42 PARALYZED PERSONS USE A TRANSFER BOARD FOR TRANSFER FROM WHEELCHAIR TO BED

43 THE WHEELCHAIR IS PLACED AT A RIGHT ANGLE TO THE TOLIET

44 TAKES 4 OR MORE STAFF USE A LIFT SHEET OR SLED TO PULL PATIENT OVER ONTO CART

45

46 REPOSITIONING A RESIDENT IN A WHEELCHAIR o LOCK THE WHEELS AND MOVE THE FOOTRESTS OUT OF THE WAY o DO NOT PULL THE RESIDENT UP BY THE ARMS o TO AVOID INJURY TO THE RESIDENT USE TWO STAFF MEMBERS

47 o ALWAYS LOCK THE BRAKES WHEN TRANSFERRING o CLEAN THE WHEELCHAIR ON A REGULAR BASIS o MOVE THE FOOTRESTS OUT OF THE WAY WHEN TRANSFERRING

48 CARDIAC CHAIRGERI-CHAIR

49 BACK DOWN A RAMP WITH A WHEELCHAIR BACK INTO THE ELEVATOR SO THE PATIENT FACES THE FRONT

50 TRANSFER THE PATIENT FEET FIRST DOWN A RAMP ENTER THE ELEVATOR HEAD FIRST
